Our hearts play a significant role in our lives. Not the organ that pumps your blood but the very core of your spiritual being which the Bible calls the heart. The heart is the internal compass of our lives and whatever is placed into our hearts will reproduce in our lives.
God’s advice to Israel was to “Plant the good seeds of righteousness, and you will harvest a crop of love. Plow up the hard ground of your hearts, for now is the time to seek the Lord, that he may come and shower righteousness upon you.” (Hosea 10:12)
God wanted Israel to use the law of sowing and reaping to reverse their plight in life. Seed is no good if the ground is unhealthy. Good seed in bad soil will seldom produce as it should. But good seed in good ground will always produce a harvest.
What is the condition of your heart? Have you lived with so much pain that your heart is hardened? Have you endured so many disappointments that your heart is filled with bitterness? Has loss engulfed your heart so that there is an impenetrable wall around it? These types of heart will only reproduce more hurt.
Ask God today to help you with your heart issue and let Him come in and change the stony heart for one of flesh so that when good seed is sown it will produce the maximum harvest in our lives.
